Analogue scales: upgrade to digital

The main feature of the DISOBOX® Plus (Fig.) from Schenck Process GmbH is the fact that it provides a simple solution to a complex requirement. It cost-effectively converts any conventional analogue scale into a high-performance digital scale. Combined with evaluation units from the DISOMAT® range or the PC software DISOVIEW E, it creates legal for trade mechatronic weighing systems with almost unlimited applications. To put it another way, it transforms traditional scales into multi-functional precision weighing solutions for the challenges of tomorrow.
The most important feature of the new electronic unit is the fact that output signals from up to eight load cells are recorded and digitised separately, so that the operator can view the measurement voltage of individual cells at any time. This has important benefits, because the dead load distribution can be precisely specified during commissioning and electronic corner calibration can be performed very easily. With the aid of modern communication modules, each load cell is individually monitored and the load distribution on the scale is accurately analysed during operation. In the event of deviations, the operator can intervene without delay. Defective components can be immediately identified and replaced, saving valuable production time and material.
